(KMOV.com) – A 23-year-old woman faces charges after she allegedly killed her aunt-in-law in south St. Louis County.

Jamie Onkle was charged Sunday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. She is currently being held on a $250,000 cash-only bond.

According to police, Onkle shot and killed 40-year-old Wendy Hall-Onkle, who was found dead at a home in the 100 block of Mann around 1:50 a.m. Sunday.

Onkle was taken into custody at the scene.

Hall-Onkle’s husband initially told News 4 he believed the shooting occurred after an argument between his wife and Onkle, the victim's niece-in-law.
